We did try sleeping on the roof one night but it was too cold and windy. There were a lot of strong winds whilst we were there, and several sandstorms including whilst visiting Sossusvlei which was an experience in itself!
The staff very incredibly helpful and kind when one of us fell ill and had to cancel a trip at our next stop after Little Kulala. The staff presented Mike with a large Birthday cake and rousing singing. It really is a wonderful place. The activities with our guide were very good and included the trip into Sossusvlei and a guided walk in the area around the lodge." See all these reviews: 17n in Namibia
"Wonderful experience at Little Kulala"
"Little Kulala: Luxury Amongst Amazing Dunes"
Owing to my bad knee, we asked for a suite closest to the main reception/dining areas, which we enjoyed for the last two nights of our three-night stay. That turned out to be a wise move because our first-assigned unit was quite far from the public spaces, and reaching it requires walking on an uneven sandy path.
Activities at LK center around the mighty dunes of the Namib Desert, and we did splurge for a breathtaking hot air balloon ride to enjoy unique aerial vistas. The civic-minded owner of the balloon company operates a tuition-free school for children of his employees and nearby residents. We absolutely loved our time at the school, and contributions (both monetary and supplies) are most welcomed.
Our other LK activities were a morning drive through the dune corridor to visit Big Daddy, et al., a short walk through Sesriem Canyon, and an ATV ride around the LK "neighbourhood" . . . all thoroughly enjoyable!" See all these reviews: 9n in Namibia; 3n in Rwanda
"Memorable Little Kulala"
The team that looked after us are a group of beautiful people who quite clearly love their jobs and their guests - attention to detail is evident everywhere! Our welcome was special and uplifting. We loved spending time with our guide Alfred, he is a knowledgeable and serious man with a lovely wit :-)
The food was delicious - the crowning glory - the evening Boma!
This camp is a must on any trip to Namibia!" See all these reviews: 9n in Namibia
"Little Kulala review"
Our guide Ben was very helpful and it was a pleasure to be with him." See all these reviews: 18n in Namibia
The location is stunning. The quality of everything was superb. Customer service was excellent. We were made to feel so welcome and the staff were very sensitive to our circumstances. Food was delicious.
The drive to the sand dunes was spectacular and the experience of climbing them was special. The guide was brilliant and made it so much fun.
Drinks served on the drive in the evening sunset was a lovely experience. The staff presented us with a birthday cake and all joined in to sing. It was beautiful. An absolutely wonderful place in every way." See all these reviews: 18n in Namibia
"Priviledge to Stay at this Beautiful Lodge"
It was my birthday whilst we were there and the whole team made it very special, baking a cake and decorating my room, to the bottle of champagne given to me, and the singing of Happy Birthday after dinner by everyone.
The Dunes were amazing and we will carry away with us wonderful memories of our morning walking up them and running full tilt down the otherside." See all these reviews: 18n in Namibia
"Excellent first stop"
Sunrise Balloon Trip
Four balloons were taking off that day and we were lucky to be in one for eight people (rather than 16!). Each couple has a corner so no jockeying for position. Conditions terrific and we followed the dry river bed towards the dunes landing after about 1¼ hours. Our pilot Rob demonstrated great skill in manoeuvring both vertically and horizontally: also at the champagne breakfast where he hacked off the neck of a bottle of champagne with a machete finally knocking off the end in a flourish of fizz! Although expensive it is an absolute must-do experience. Stunning, serene and a photographer's dream." See all these reviews: 16n in Namibia
Overall, still a wonderful setting with exceptional rooms (rooftop outside bed for stargazing, plunge pool, ...) and we had a great time, just expected that little bit extra" See all these reviews: 20n in Namibia
"Wonderful lodge - cannot fault anything"
The staff were incredible - welcoming, friendly, helpful, with an excellent sense of humour, those to mention especially were Andrew, Ingrid, Rosa, Eduard, and our guide Chris. The activities were excellent, perfectly organised, both the two sundowners and the trip to Sossusvlei.
Definitely recommended!" See all these reviews: 12n in Namibia
